These parathas have a nice sweetish taste because peas are sweet on their own and i added a pinch of sugar to enchance the flavor. I served them with a mint yogurt which i shall also share the recipe. Actually you can fill parathas with almost everything and each time they taste different. So today its PEAS PARATHAS for us!! They can be half cooked and frozen also. Take them for your picnics or a packed lunch and its soo complete with yogurt or a salad!!
INGREDIENTS FOR THE DOUGH
2 cups whole wheat flour
salt and pepper to taste
2 tablespoons of oil
warm water to knead

1 small onion chopped fine
salt to taste
a pinch of sugar
a pinch of cumin powder
1 teaspoon of fennel seeds, crushed
lemon juice to taste
a little fresh chopped coriander leaves, mint leaves and green chillies to taste
Combine all the ingredients for the peas filling and mix well. Keep aside. Make balls out of the dough and roll one ball into a thin round. Roll another one too and spread the peas filling thinly on one round. Cover with another round of the dough and seal the edges well with your fingertips. Roll it lightly to even out the whole paratha and place it on a hot preheated iron gridle to cook . Cook on both sides, add a bit of butter and cook till browned well. Serve hot or cold with MINTY YOGURT SAUCE
